Jeannette Boucher, a young French beauty from a family left penniless by the revolution, must marry against her will to save them all from ruin. But almost immediately after the vows are spoken, she learns that her old English husband is impotent - and in his desire for an heir, he plans to compromise her in the worst way. Determined to escape such a fate, she stows away on one of His Majesty’s frigates. But a woman alone is in constant danger.
To Lieutenant Treynor, honor means everything…. Born a bastard to a wayward marquise, Lieutenant Crawford Treynor was given to a poor farmer to raise and was maltreated until he ran away to join the Royal Navy. Treynor is determined to prove he’s as good as any other man and rise to captain his own frigate. But once he finds Jeannette aboard The Tempest he must decide whether to return her to the man he knows would abuse her - or risk everything, even his life, to keep her safe.

Loved the story, but not the narrator.
Yes. But I might suggest they read it. I really didn't like the male voices the narrator created. I amost stopped listening to it because of it. The story, however, captivated me and I continued. Happy that I did because it's a very well written story.
the male voices all had a nasal / whiney sound to them. Very unappealing. I would suggest she work on them.
a better narrator.
A very good story line. Kept me interested. Lots of twists and turns.

PAINFUL on the ears! But a GREAT STORY!
A differant narrator!!!! Its a great story but painful to listen to.
The confrontation at sea. A very wide statement considering. But from the personal to the political the confrontations are the height of it.
NO NO NO NO NO!! I can't even express how awful it was. Ii wanted to hear the story but winced everytime a character spoke. The narrators speaking voice is pleasant but when she attempts voices they are slovenly, thick, painful slow and idiotic sounding. Its like all the characters open their mouths to speak and turn into drunken illiterate old men who have trouble breathing and speaking and are hoarse and spittle plagued.
I DID LOVE THE BOOK! The story in all aspects are splendid. .. but READ it... don't waste a credit or a dollar on the audio version!!!! Its such a shame.... it really is.
If it had a different narrator I would wholeheartedly praise this book. But if you want lighthearted fluff with giggles and luxury then this one isn't for you. And if you want steamy hot and bothered erotic scenes then this still isn't for you. But if you want a good tale woven with gritty facts and suspenses then yeah, it's for you.
